Review of the Brophy Hitch Extender with Step


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy Hitch Extender with step for 2-inch hitches. It's available at 19-inches-long, part number ST12 and 23-inches-long, part number ST18. Extend your trailer hitch receiver opening to give you more clearance during turns. This 19-inch Brophy Hitch extender will work with ball mount, bike rack, cargo carrier or any other hitch mounted accessory. As you can see we've got it set up here with our ball mount and the step is going to come in handy for anything you might need to get out of the back of your truck. The extension's also going to help with any clearance issues that we may have with our jack. If your vehicle has a spare tire at the rear you can use the extender to bright 00:01:00 enough clearance for your bike rack or cargo carrier. The 19-inch-long one gives us a 14-inch extension and the 23-inch-long one gives us an 18-inch extension. Our step measures 17 inches wide by 6 and a half inches deep. It features a diamond shred pattern for good grip and has a 300 pound weight capacity.

It features the gross towing weight of 3500 pounds. When used with a weigh distribution it goes up to 7000 pounds. The tongue weight is 350 pounds and the tongue weight with weigh distribution is 700 pounds. Keep in mind when using the set extension it will reduce your hitcher's capacity by 1/3. The whole thing is made of the sturdy steel construction with the black powdered coat finish so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. Now when we got all the features I go ahead and show you how to get it installed. First thing I'll do it's go ahead and load the shank into our receiver tube and we'll line up our pinholes.

You will have to provide your own pins and clips. Let's start with our first one. Slide that through, put on a clip. Then we can take our ball on or any accessory we have. We'll line up our pinhole there.

Take our other pin and clip and if you need pins and clips you can picked them up right here, etrailer.com, part number PC3. Now you can just use your accessory as you normally would. That's going to complete our look at Brophy Hitch Extension with step for 2-inch hitches.
